Prosecutors charged Jacori Richardson, 40, with involuntary manslaughter, armed criminal action and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death. Authorities issued a warrant for his arrest Thursday.
The crash happened during the evening hours of July 15 at South Grand Boulevard and Juniata Street in the South Grand neighborhood.
